STOP COMPANIES FROM SELLING PRODUCTS THAT BELITTLE MENTAL HEALTH

This campaign and petition was picked up by Huffington Post - http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/mental-health-slogan-tees-campaign_uk_59941182e4b00914164150f6 - which caused Pink Boutique, and other online outlets, to stop selling these products that belittle mental health issues.

Congratulations Phil Hill!

STOP COMPANIES FROM SELLING PRODUCTS THAT BELITTLE MENTAL HEALTH

Stop selling products that say 'Cute But Psycho', 'Cute But Psycho But Cute' & 'Crazy But Cute'.

Why is this important?

These products:
- Send out a message that mental health is a joking matter.
- Miseducate people on what a Psychopath is.
- Exploit mental health to make money.
- Take a serious mental health disorder (Psychopathy) & try to make it "fashionable".
- Upset many members of the mental health community.

Reasons for signing

  • We need to put a stop to the inconsiderate behaviour of retailers. They hold such a powerful position, especially in influencing young people, in society and they need to start to take this position far more seriously.
  • Sick people are not being taken seriously because of things such as this belittling serious conditions, meaning people underestimate the severity of the real thing.
  • Well done Phil for your commitment, it means a lot! I have an anxiety disorder since early childhood and later developed depression and these clothes are an insult and belittle these and many other conditions.
